Joell Ortiz – Anxiety (Video)
When artist’s touch on the vulnerable side of humanity with their music it does something special for the listener. It creates an instant bridge between the artist and the fan. I can see this happening over and over again with this track, Anxiety, from Joell Ortiz. He relays what it is like to live life in a state of constant apprehension and all the signs and feelings it incorporates. He also reflects on how dismissive people can be of the topic.
This track is one of the strongest of the year in my estimation as Nottz does his usual remarkable when melding samples, drums, and instrumentation.
